There are wonderful things in real jazz, the talent for improvisation, the liveliness, the being at one with the audience.
Though music oft hath such a charm to make bad good, and good provoke to harm.
The ear is the avenue to the heart.
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
I wish the government would put a tax on pianos for the incompetent.
The professional because of his constant involvement with the mechanics of music, must fight to preserve the naiveté that the layman already possesses.
Music is moonlight in the gloomy night of life.
If Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.
If life was fair, Elvis would be alive and all the impersonators would be dead.
What music is more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
